Purchasing and owning a home is an exciting and major life event. However, owning a home is much more than owning a residence. A house comes with many responsibilities and upkeep, and if a home is purchased in a development, such as a homeowners association, it means following certain rules and regulations. To some, this may seem very minimal and could possibly be an ideal environment for them. But if violations occur, this could create a complex matter for a homeowner.
